Real Madrid have the opportunity to get within three points of the leader, Atlético de Madrid , if they manage to beat Valladolid tonight (starting at 9:00 pm) at José Zorrilla in the match corresponding to the 24th day of the League. Levante has become the Whites' best ally after drawing with the colchoneros on Wednesday at the Ciutat de Valencià and achieving victory this Saturday at the Wanda Metropolitano. In just two weeks, Madrid has managed to cut seven points from those of Simeone, who still have a pending match, but are already feeling the encouragement of their pursuers. The bad news for Zidane's men is the flood of casualties they have suffered for a few weeks, which has been joined by Karim Benzema , whose presence for Wednesday's Champions League match against Atalanta is in doubt. Mariano will replace the French at the top of the attack. The coach only has 14 players from the first team, three of them goalkeepers, and has had to complete the call-up with five players from the subsidiary.
For its part, Valladolid also has a good number of players in the infirmary. Seven injured by the nine of Madrid. The situation begins to be critical for Sergio's men, penultimate with 21 points, tied with Eibar and Alavés who mark salvation. After six league games without victory, with three draws and three defeats, they need to win again as many as possible to try to break away from the relegation zone.
